Zantingh Finds A Home With CMU Soccer

The CMU women’s soccer team is happy to announce the commitment of Deanna Zantingh for the upcoming season.

A native of Southern-Ontario, Zantingh joins the Blazers boasting previous college-level experience at Redeemer University College in 2007 playing in the OCAA. The 5’10 forward is a product of West Lincoln Youth Soccer in Smithville, Ontario.

“I expect Deanna to be a great team-leader for us and I know that she has already connected with her teammates,” explained head coach Anika Southam, “Her experience and positive-outlook are instantly noticeable and I am very glad that she will be a part of our team this season.”

Since graduating high school, Deanna has spent time working with Youth With A Mission (YWAM), an international Christian discipleship training-program in Peru, Mexico and inter-city Los Angeles, ministering to at-risk youth. She is studying towards a degree in Peace & Conflict Transformation Studies at CMU.

Zantingh and the Blazers open their 2011 MCAC campaign at home to Providence University College on September 10th at the John Scouras Field of the Winnipeg Soccer Complex. Kick-off is scheduled for 1:00 pm.
